This Multiswitch unit connects to a Quattro or Wideband LNBs and offers a terrestrial input port to connect a terrestrial antenna and enable the distribution of satellite TV as well as DTT/DAB broadcasts at MDU/IRS installations. A manual switch selects whether the satellite inputs connect to a Quattro LNB or up to two Wideband LNBs for receiving up to two full satellite broadcasts. The loop-through trunk ports can be connected to cascade additional Multiswitch units.

The DC-input port of the Multiswitch unit powers the trunk lines which power the connected LNB and the built-in Terrestrial amplifier of the unit and of any other cascaded units. The Trunk power LED will turn green when the Trunk lines are powered.

The output ports are powered by the connected STBs enabling super low power consumption from the trunk lines and powering as many cascaded switches as possible using a single power supply unit. If a connected STB is not able to power its respective port, a power inserter can be utilized.

Each of the four STB output ports supports either Legacy or Unicable mode (auto-detect). The Unicable mode is compatible with either SatCR (Unicable, EN50494) or dCSS (Unicable II, EN50607) STB models and delivers 16 User Bands. The ports feature a status LED indicating their operational mode:

- Solid green = Legacy mode
- Blinking green = dCSS or SatCR mode
- Off = no voltage detected on the port (only terrestrial signal available on the port when the unit is powered)

All the four STB output ports combine the Terrestrial input with unity gain.

The unit configuration and RF parameters can be programmed with Inverto’s SatPal Controller device*

For Indoor and outdoor (IP54) installations.

Typical single household installation

Typical MDU/IRS building installation with two Wideband LNBs receiving two satellites

If sky service is required to be distributed, it should be connected over the Sat A position
